    Default Oil based Deck Stain Issues

    I have just stained my deck with an oil based stain. In some spots it is not drying...feels real oily. Anything I can do to cut the oil in those spots so they'll dry?

    Those could be spots that were either wet to begin with or have a high sap content, which will resist absorption of the stain, or, the stain pooled in those spots and has saturated the material. Take a clean, dry rag and rub the areas down a bit to remove the excess stain from the surface. Go slow and carefully. You can reapply the stain in these spots if necessary.
